I'd like to announce a great opportunity to learn GIS technology and how it 
can be used for marine ecosystem research. This course will take place in 
the Marine Protected Area of Capo Rizzuto. Participants will have the chance 
of  becoming successful Geographic Information System users through the ESRI 
Authorized "Introduction to ArcGIS 9.x". Additional modules will introduce 
the participants to GIS-based tools and techniques of marine scientists with 
underwater and computer sessions. They will learn how to map marine habitats 
from satellite images and verify them on the field, perform marine fauna and 
flora surveys and find associations among all the biotic and abiotic 
components using GIS.

When: August 16-26, 2006

Where: Marine Protected Area of Capo Rizzuto - Crotone, Italy
